PFS: Write


Published 1986


PFS: Write from Software Publishing Corporation and Soft-Art,Inc. 1986.

pfs:Write was a simple, early-in-the-life-of-desktop-computing word processor created by Software Publishing Corporation (SPC). It was intended for DOS systems, but Apple II versions were also released.

It included all the basic features common to most word processors of the day, including automatic word wrapping, spell checking, copy and paste, underlining, and boldfacing; and it also boasted a few of the most-commonly-used advanced features, such as mail merge and few others. The product was considerably easier to both learn and use than its far more fully featured and expensive DOS word processing competitors, WordPerfect, Microsoft Word and XyWrite.

pfs:Write was part of a family of products released by SPC under the "pfs:" brand which, when installed onto the same computer, combined to form a sort of office suite which included companion products pfs:File (a database), pfs:Plan (a spreadsheet), pfs:Report (reporting software), and pfs:Graph (business graphics software). Other, mostly utilitarian products bearing the "pfs:" brand subsequently emerged, including pfs:Access (for data communications), pfs:Easy Start (a menuing utility), and pfs:Proof (a proofreading utility). Eventually, SPC offered a low- to mid-level desktop publishing product called pfs:Publisher; and it packaged the core word processing, database and spreadsheet products into an suite named pfs:Office.
